About me

Lisa-Notes-collage

Welcome!

I’m Lisa. I write here about how I see God in the everyday.

From birth I heard the stories about Jesus. But in adulthood I began to know Jesus.
And the stories came to life. They live still. That’s what I share.

  • I live in an empty nest with my husband Jeff
  • But I’m still a mom to Morgan (27) and Jenna (21), and a mother-in-law to Fuller and Trey
  • I can’t sleep late or for long at a time (yawn)
  • I homeschooled my kids from K-12th and never was more challenged or learned so much
  • I miss my middle daughter Kali who left us at 1½ hours old for heaven
  • I insatiably thirst for more knowledge (the internet is wearing me out)
  • I made a big church change (for me) in 2012; I’ve never felt freer in Christ
  • I hate talking on the phone (except to my kids—phone home!)
  • But I love my phone incredibly (for everything else but talking)
  • Auburn University has my allegiance in the SEC—War Eagle
  • I love, love, love reading, particularly non-fiction
  • But I can be talked into a good novel occasionally
  • Central America stole a piece of my heart and won’t let go
  • I’m an introvert who thrives on solitude and contemplative spiritual traditions
  • But I’m also big on family and deep conversations with friends
  • I’m too tied to the clock—scheduling is my strength and my weakness
  • I started memorizing Bible chapters years ago and now I’m hooked
  • I also write for Do Not Depart and run the Bible memory groups there
  • I’m a scaredy-cat who is learning to show up with God anyway

On the Blog

I post about 3 times a week, except for 31 Days in October when I share daily.

Once a month I share my reading list and get more personal with “Links, Books, and Things I Love“. Once a year I pick One Word (or so) and write a challenge the first Monday of each month (or thereabouts).

I started in Blogger in 2008 (and left my old posts there, sigh), but switched here to WordPress in 2013 for a fresh start.

    Hello Mam, thanks for stopping by my blog, Thanks for that comment, it led me to you. I really love your blog, its content and everything. I may have to mimic your ‘on the blog’ monthly review of the blog. I just simply love it and I guess it will help me coordinate my writings. I will also like to join the memorizing scripture link up. I actually made a post on benefits of memorizing the scriptures some time ago. I love your writing, especially the one on taking a pause…
    God bless your work here and bless you richly.
    Blessings,
    Grace.

      Nice to meet you, Grace. We’d love to have you memorize scripture with us. We’ll start a new chapter in mid-January 2014 or early February. I’ll post details as it gets closer. May the Lord continue to bless you also as you continue to give him praise!
